The low back is one of the weakest links in the body — especially if you consider it’s role in both structural support and extension in weightlifting. This is something athletes that have attended a seminar with me hear me harp on when we start to discuss programming considerations. Last weekend, I picked up another neat low back training exercise from @nikita789 during the Russian WL seminar: The Superman GHD Hold.
Done post training, Nikita recommends 3-5 sets starting with a 30s static hold and building up to 60s. Weight can be added across the top of the back to increase intensity. A key element here is to stretch the arms forward to release tension along the upper back and place the emphasis into the lower back.
